HID daytime runner problems '11 WRX

I bought my car used from a dealer and the guy before me installed a cheap HID kit for the daytime runners.

When i turn on my car the lamps flicker and eventually die out. The tricky part is, one of the lamps will work fine, but the other one dies. It is completely random which side decides to work and which one dies.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks!

The fix is to take them out and replace all the HID equipment with the correct halogen bulbs. You cannot run HIDs as DRLs because DRLs run at reduced voltage.
